Watch a tiny Lego OLED terminal being made in this ASMR video

For fans of lego, ASMR style YouTube builds, absolutely teeny tiny microcontrollers, and LED screens, Christmas has definitely come early. We’ve been impressed by these amazing little Lego microcontroller OLED terminals (opens in new tab) built by James “Ancient” Brown since we first saw them, but details have always been on the short side. We know these nostalgia filled bricks can run Doom (opens in new tab), but when it comes to details on how exactly they were made, we didn’t have heaps of information to go on. Until Now.

Hackaday (opens in new tab) recently shared a new YouTube video by Ancient (opens in new tab) that gives a wonderful an in depth look into the process. The video is 12 and a half minutes of maker style ASMR bliss as you get a step by step look at the process of making one of these functional terminals. This means there’s no talking but plenty of nice upclose sounds of things being made. Ancient warns that the video is edited from a few different builds, as well as cut down in places, but it’s still the most comprehensive look we’ve had of this process. And it’s wonderfully mesmerising.
